She said that the restoration of power to 4,000 mega watts followed the repairs of the vandalised pipeline supplying gas to Okpai power plant in Delta State.
Olagunju said that the 450 megawatts from Okpai power plant lost during the period of the damage had been returned into the national grid since on Monday.
Meanwhile, the new owners of the privatised Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), successor companies, have cried out over the actual operational realities facing them, barely a month after taking over operations of the companies.
The investors, who spoke at a meeting conveyed yesterday by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), the first of such since they physically took over the firms on November 1, 2013, said, in reality, the system seemed to be “upside down.”
Officials, who spoke on behalf of Egbin and Geregu power plants, accused the Market Operator (MO) and System Operator of not adhering to the Multi-year Tariff Order (MYTO 2) agreements and provisions in the interim rules.
Baring his mind, managing director of Kano electricity distribution company (Disco), Dr. Jamil Gwamna, said the market rules, especially with regards to the MYTO 2, had been turned upside down.
